Name Pronounced: Kah-oh-ree
Appearance: Kaori has almond shaped, dark brown eyes that can look almost black depending on what kind of lighting she's in, and her eyes are a little on the smaller side. When she smiles her eyes have a tendency to light up with whatever she's smiling because of; amusement, happiness, etc. Her mouth is slightly on the smaller side, with a rather full bottom lip and a slightly full upper lip. Her nose is slightly on the larger side, and the end of it is kind of rounded.
Personality: Kaori is pretty much your average girl. Unlike her twin, she has nothing honestly outstanding about her personality. She makes friends easily, she's nice enough, but has the normal shortcomings. She can get rather irritated with people's stupidity, and she doesn't hesitate to show it. She has mood swings, just like every other typical teenager, going from happy to sad to angry rather easily depending on the situation she's in. Kaori has a stubborn streak a mile wide, and pretty much refuses to give up on something once she's dug her heels in, even when it's shown to her face that she's wrong. This tends to get her in trouble easily, and she has generally gotten good at pretending to be sorry for whatever she's done at that particular time.
History: Like many weyrbred children, Kaori and Maylin were both the result of a goldflight. To be specific, the result of a losing bronzerider and a drudge hooking up during a Goldflight. However, the strain of twin childbirth killed their birth mother, and while most of the time the two girls were left in the creche to be cared for, they did know their father, and the greenrider he eventually made his weyrmate. They grew up calling the woman 'mother', and were never to really know otherwise, since their father had decided that they were better off not knowing. Their relationship with their father was loving and caring, and he rather doted on them when they were together. That of their surrogate mother was mostly the same, with the exception of the fact that there was some distance between them; she never forgot they weren't really her children, and so acted just a little differently because of it.
Information about Kaori's dragon
Dragon Name: Percayth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: To go along with her flamboyant personality is a flamboyant looking body. Her hide will primarily be the color of green on her egg shell with whorls and blotches akin to patch marks in every shade of green along her back, wings, and neck. Her tail will be a different color still, darkening quite quickly from the base green of her body to a hunter green. Over all the green will be a bit of an eyesore to look at but the interplay of colors will very much match her personality.
Personality: Percayth will hatch from her egg in a burst of red and green and, perhaps as a way to fulfil the evil seeming destiny of the egg, she'll cut herself on a shell shard. No matter though, she'll continue on without a care that she's been accidentally sliced by her own egg and take off at a running bolt towards whatever happens to catch her eye first. Oh yes, from the start small Percayth will be feisty and energetic. Everything will seem interesting, unless it happens to try and slow her down, such as an injury, then it will be summarily ignored with a sheer force of will that might get her seriously injured or killed if her rider isn't careful in the future.
